The Kuga is a tremendously comfortable ride and its high centre of gravity will only be a problem if you’re treating this soft-roader like a hot hatch and the open road like a race track.
SPLIT TAILGATE: When opened partially the Kuga's rear is reminiscent of Volvo's C30 and just as impractical. When fully opened, the lowered boot lip and wide entryway is ideal for any stowage needs.
The Kuga has a host of stowage compartments; the usual dash, gearbox and boot as well as under the rear passenger seats and beneath the floor mats.
TRENDY: The Trend specification sees grey interior fittings swapped for a bright metallic orange.
